Effect of IAA, IBA and NAA on the vegetative propagation of Aloe vera (L.) burm. f. (Ghritakumari)

Mohammed Sala Uddin, Mohammad Harun-Ur-Rashid

Aloe vera (L.) Burm. f. is a succulent medicinal herb belonging to the family Aloaceae possesses several medicinal activities and properties. Presence of male sterility and long gestation period of this species, plantlets are the primary and preferable commercial source as propagating material. Therefore, the effect of IAA, IBA and NAA on the vegetative propagation by stem cuttings of the plant was assessed. A total of 13 treatments were applied on the cuttings following the quick dip method and planted in sandy bed. The whole experiment was conducted following completely randomized design. Data were collected at 30, 60 and 90 DAP (Days after planting). The maximum number of roots, length of roots and biomass were observed to be 24.33, 27.17 cm and 122.67 g respectively at 90 DAP in the cuttings treated with NAA 1000 ppm solution (T8) whereas control (T13) showed minimum rooting and shooting performance. Rooting hormones were performed for number of roots, length of roots and biomass following sequence as NAA> IBA> IAA. The present study concludes that NAA 1000 ppm solution would be considered as the most suitable for producing maximum number of roots, length of roots and biomass in Aloe vera (L.) Burm. f. at 90 DAP.
